Boyo, love the RMC N-1, too bad the fit is not for me...

I also like the small front stencils, just don't like the big ones on the back and these kind of stencils from FW:

What I meant to say was that these FW deck jackets have the exact same paraffin coated jungle cloth as the FW Great Lakes Engineers Military Style Coat, see the close ups here:

They also seem to have the exact same melton pile lining.


That USN stencil is more than a bit oversized.

The paraffin jungle cloth is very nice, as is that melton lining. You've got a great couple deck jackets.

The FW lineup is hard to figure. I thought the Browning Engineer N-1 was part of this seasons Civilian Military Style line under the Union Special Overalls label, but it has both their Great Lakes outerwear and western forestry Bubo brands on it.

Indeed, it's a very cool shop. Not to rub it in, but we moved recently and it's only about a 30 minute ride on my bike!

Yeah rub it in... Will take me at least 14 hours by plane and train...

Haven't been there yet, I 'll try to go there this fall, it's near the Meiji Jingu entrance/Harajuku tube station right?

Yeah, not too far from JR Harajuku or Meiji-jingu-mae subway stations. Bit of the beaten track and hard to locate, but it's a great neighborhood for getting lost. RMC is close by too.
